Baptism

Baptism has been a hot topic these (most) days, especially within the Reformed communities who have nothing else to argue about. The Particular Baptists have rediscovered their roots against infant baptism and have shown much fervor in the debate. In light of this, the discussions have changed a bit by an understanding of the major covenantal differences between…

Egocentric adulation

Through the recent years there have been cases where an individual who, in an effort to commit a crime, became injured on someone else's property. That individual who was injured, encouraged by greed (and greedy people), turns around and attempts to sue the owner of the property for injuries caused. Some of those cases were…

Humbled by suffering

Please have patience with me as I attempt to delicately make a point that I feel ought to be made. After considering some of the discussions on Twitter recently, I've realized that many hold to a very self-centered arrogant view of their purpose in this life. Not only of themselves but of mankind in general, as if…

A plea to my brothers

Grace to you and peace from God to all who live and move and have their being in the Lord Jesus Christ. I write today to appeal to those who have chosen to actively defend the 'social justice' movement, and also those who vehemently oppose it. I come humbly before you as a man of…

The Pendulum Effect

Humans seem fairly predictable in how they react to certain less than desirable or even heart-wrenching situations. Rather than an attempt to seek or maintain a balance we often go to the exact opposite side of the spectrum, a reaction that has been termed 'The Pendulum Effect". According to dictionary.com the definition to this is…

Understanding Salvation

This is a review of the book titled "From Death to Life: How Salvation Works" by Pastor Allen S. Nelson IV. I do not know what possessed me to take this on or how I convinced myself that I was skilled enough to write a review, but here we are. As I began to read…

No earthly good

There is, in my opinion, an overly extreme amount of focus and time dedicated to being an advocate for one cause or another these days. Whether it be an advocate for planet/animal preservation, racial inequalities, or gender inequalities all would be considered doing some earthly good with the time we have. The problem becomes, when…

Inspired

There is a book that was released recently, which the title for it has currently slipped my mind, that aims to explain the Bible in the 21st century. Unfortunately the author of this book has reduced the Bible down to just good storytelling instead of honoring the text for what it truly is. Despite the…

Division can be good

Everyone who's anyone seems to be pushing for some form of unity or inclusion these days. There's this mentality, even among Christians, that considers disagreements as the ultimate evil and destroyer of relationships. Well I am here to tell you disagreements happen and divisions can be good. How do you eat a whole elephant again? The Apostolic Church…

Racial Reconciliation

Of the many discussed topics among professing Christians recently, including the highly debated topic of female leadership within the church the most divisive, in my opinion, has been that of racial reconciliation or simply RR. I may not be able to articulate this as well as others have or will, but I feel the need…
